As you can see in the images above, the Reimagined Maruti S-Presso looks like a compact off-roading vehicle. Due to its compact size, it looks quite cute. However, it might be able to navigate through smaller roads and lanes. The two-seater car features a sporty look that is quite different from the existing version. You can see a heavily modified front fascia (from the new bumper to the new windshield). The micro-SUV also gets extra headlights and new side-view mirrors. The enhanced side profile is completed with rugged tires. And of course, the rear seats have been completely removed. Overall, the digitally visualized Maruti S-Presso looks more bulky yet compact.
